Comment_Box.jpgBefore people can start commenting on your blog, they need to know that your blog exists! One of the best ways to advertise your blog is by leaving comments on other blogs. When you do, you are given the chance to "own" your comment. This means leaving your name, you email address (only for the blog admin to see) and your blog URL. By contributing to the conversation on other blogs and leaving a link to your own blog, you are inviting them to comment on your thoughts as well.

At the bottom of the comment box, you can see some HTML tags. These are tags that can be used inside of your comment to add, among other things, emphasis (bold, italics) or hyperlinks. If you would like to read more about using HTML tags, Maria Andersen has prepared a Basic Guide to Using HTML (.pdf).
